IT BEGAN raining during the night, but it looks like all we’re going to get, along with some cold temperatures.

New England is going to get slammed hard when what’s being called Nemo, already named “a historic blizzard,” gets cranked up.

    Winter storms are not named. I hate this Weather Chanel gimmick. Sandy was a true Tropical Storm / Hurricane that became a Nor’easter. “Nemo” is no such thing. The storm of 8-9 February is just your garden variety low pressure system causing some serious issues. It does not have the organization or the sourcing of a Tropical Depression. The storm front is dumping a lot of snow and it does have some fierce winds attached to it so it is no joke. But to confuse this storm with Sandy is to dumb-down the conversation. Not every severe weather event gets a name. Next thing you know twisters will be getting names, perhaps “Dorothy”?
